Neodymium metal is a kind of rare earth elements, which is black gray metal. It has paramagnetism. Neodymium is one of the most active rare earth metals and turn dark in air rapidly, which turns out neodymium oxide.

The main applications of neodymium is Nd-Fe-B permanent magnet material.
Magnesium alloy or aluminum alloy adding 1.5-2.5% Nd can improve the high temperature property, air impermeability and corrosion resistance. It widely apply to aerospace material.
Yttrium aluminum garnet doping neodymium powder can shot high frequency wave laser beam. It widely get use in soldering and cutting of thick 10mm less thin material in industry. In medical profession, it can replace scalpel to do extraction or disinfect wound.
